I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading

good news bad news

My treatments are over and I'm now at a monthly shot and daily pill. That's the good news. The bad news is that my dad had a stroke.

He was driving on a Friday and had a stroke sometime Saturday morning.

So I'm now trying to figure out my RL, still sucked into fanfiction, and being weekend graveyard caregiver for my dad. My brother who is living the closest is out of town on a job (wild fire team coordinator) so I've moved into his place to be closer. Luckily the siblings/dad can afford a part-time caregiver or I'd never make it!

All thoughts of talking to/with you at least weekly after treatment has flown the coop. I hope you enjoy whatever challenges you signed up for and have a GREAT reading year. I'm crossing my fingers that I can post challenges for 2020 but right now it doesn't look good.

Wow, February already?

I spent the first part of January doing laundry and shopping and the last part of January on a cruise. Fourteen mostly beautiful days. We did have to sail through storms off the coast of California and they were ROUGH! Hawaii was wonderful and I learned I need to fly over and spend more time at each island. No way is a partial day enough.

Now I fully understand what my Mom was going though before her knee surgery. She went through drawers and closets clearing this out. I have surgery scheduled for Monday. It's out patient but I'll still be put under for it. I'm still going to leave a note on my keyboard. There wasn't time to go through drawers and closets. I'm truly hoping to be back soon after but give me a month to get my brain working again.

I bought two books while in Hawaii and even visited the State Library. I can hardly wait to tell you about it.

Hugs to all - go read a romance this month ;-)
